The Royal Family website has been updated to reflect the new titles of Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.
The titles of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s children have been updated on the Royal Family’s website, where they remain in sixth and seventh place.
Until 9.30 a.m. this morning, the children were referred to on the Buckingham Palace website as plain’master’ and’miss’ Mountbatten-Windsor. They are now known as ‘Prince Archie of Sussex’ and ‘Princess Lilibet of Sussex,’ respectively.
The new development comes after their parents stated in a statement defending their decision to use the titles that it is Archie and Lilibet’s “birthright” to be called prince and princess.
Despite the fact that the couple only revealed the matter yesterday, the Duke and Duchess insisted that it had been’settled for some time’ with King Charles.
In a private conversation following the Queen’s funeral last year, His Majesty is said to have told Prince Harry that his children would be allowed to be addressed as prince and princess.
‘The children’s titles have been a birthright since their grandfather became monarch,’ said a spokesman for Harry and Meghan. This matter has been settled in accordance with Buckingham Palace for some time.’
Lilibet, their 21-month-old daughter, was christened in California without Charles, Camilla, William, or Kate present, and her royal title of ‘princess’ was used formally for the first time yesterday.
According to sources close to the Sussexes, they were disappointed that Buckingham Palace did not immediately recognize Archie and Lilibet’s titles following the Queen’s death six months ago.
When Charles took the throne in September, the titles of the Prince and Princess of Wales, as well as their three children, were quickly changed.
However, Archie and Lili’s were not changed until approximately 24 hours after the baptism announcement yesterday.
According to Buckingham Palace sources, they are waiting for Harry and Meghan to make a final decision.
